The Key Steps for Grand Regulating Slideshow plots an effective approach to grand regulation. With this photographic outline for context and continuity, please join me weekly for a short episode of this expanding, piecemeal presentation that formerly would have happened in person in a classroom. Despite the negatives of not seeing your faces or hearing your questions in real time, I think there may be strengths to this format: the abilities to scout the path ahead and revisit each step on demand, for instance.
The slideshow, with its accompaniment of captions, may present ideas you wish to challenge. Some items may surprise you a little and raise questions. Great. We can pause at a photo or cover two or more at one sitting as suits our needs.
So much can be said about grand regulating. Trying to say it all inevitably leaves things out, overwhelms, or bores. And words can prove a little slippery in the brain. So, more detail but briefly added is the goal.
This week's photo shows tools used for taking in-piano samples to accurately set up on a bench (more on that later). Here, you see two sizes of Keysteps (yes, my Key Steps feature my Keysteps), two WNG tools, a 200 gram weight, and some tweezers. Can you piece together why I've chosen these? And why, for sampling purposes, the Dip Tool's little crossbar was left out? There are the slides to crib from. And my free Digital Protocols, if you like...
